  Train in Leipzig Train Station
by mindcrime

There are several daily trains from Berlin with different prices. I booked online from a fast direct train for 36euros (return ticket). The train ride was about 70’. We had printed the e-ticket and we showed it to the inspector when we asked for inside the train. He also asked us for the credit card that we used (don’t forget to have it with you).

Leipzig’s train station is a huge terminal station with 26 platforms. Watch the screens for your platform. In case you have some time you can wait at one of the cafes inside the station or do some shopping at one of the 130 shops!

From the train station you can walk around the Old Town (no need for tram or bus). In case you need a tram most of the lines pass in front of the station.

The Leipzig-Halle Airport (LEJ) is 20 kilometres NW of the city. There is a bus to the city center and of course taxi or rental cars available. If you come with a low cost company like RyanAir you will arrive at LeipzigAltenburg (AOC) which is 40 kiolemeters South of Leipzig.
